Asst prof Ranganath claims he was sacked for filing PIL to form union

An assistant professor has alleged that an engineering college suspended him for filing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) before the high court, requesting that private engineering college faculties be allowed to form a union. However, college authorities claimed the action was taken based on his ‘poor performance’.

Ranganath Gowda, assistant professor in mechatronics engineering of Acharya Institute of Technology in Soladevanahalli was suspended on Friday.

‘Moving court angered management’

Ranganath said a showcause notice was issued to him only after his PIL was allowed by the high court. The college management was angry with him for moving the court, he claimed.

Ranganath, who has been working with the college for the past eight years, said: “The college issued a notice asking about my performance as a faculty. I replied, stating about 95% of my students had passed in the subject and their feedback was also impressive. But the authorities did not look into it.”

He said they allowed him only two minutes to pick up his things from the college. “I had been entrusted a laboratory examination, but it was allotted to another person without even informing me,” he added.

Ranganath is the president of All India Private Colleges Employees Union (AIPCEU)’s Karnataka chapter.

Union’s all-India president Karthik KM said: “Karnataka is one of the states to allow IT employees to form a union ( two years ago. On similar lines, we sought the government’s nod for teachers to form unions. This will benefit teachers in private schools and colleges to negotiate their payscale, seek PF, gratuity, lawful workloads, maternal leave and group insurance schemes. Instant terminations and harassment will be eliminated.”

College dismisses allegations
B Premnath Reddy, founder chairman of JMJ Education Society, the parent body of Acharya Group of Institutions, said Ranganath did not perform well despite being given several opportunities.

“We’ve given many opportunities to Ranganath to take up online courses and improve his skills. But, he was avoiding them citing students’ performance in exams.

Based on recruiters’ feedback, we issued a notice to Ranganath, but in his reply, he falsified information. A retired district court judge is conducting an inquiry in this regard and final action will be taken based on the report,” Reddy said.

Asked whether filing the PIL led to the suspension, Reddy said: “He has a every right to take legal routes to form a union and that was never a matter of worry for us. Likewise, we also have the right to evaluate our faculties for betterment of our students which we are doing.”

Is This Right ?
